When it comes to device protection we basically have two sides, those who go all out and those who prefer to stick with the bare phone and hope for the best. Speaking personally, I have been on both sides, but I have also been on the side of scratching my display and since then — I come to realize that spending a few bucks to protect a few hundred dollar smartphone sounds like a good idea.

That being the case, we recently spent some hands-on time checking out the Spigen SGP Ultra Crystal Steinheil screen protector for the HTC One. With this, those few bucks are actually $13.99 and the good news is this protector is available for sale at this very moment. Simply put, those picking up an HTC One now have an option to consider from day one.

This one is touted as being an “enhanced optical hard coated film.” More to the point here, what you will be getting is a single sheet of hard coated 4H that protects your display. The application process is simple and to the point and nicely, without the need of a special spray. Just peel and stick and you are protected.

In terms of use once the screen protector is on, there isn’t really any noticeable difference. The display still reacts and looks just as good as it did prior to applying the protector, Basically, this is just one of the many quality products from Spigen SGP.
